good morning, it's a warm and humid day's start. sharon will have the traffic after marty's first warning weather. well, it was pouring a few moments ago. it may not be now, but it is shortly. we're showing a ton of moisture moving our way. what i want to do is change to a scan. it's one i like to use. it's called a mosaic. it combines all of the radar.
it's showing what's down to the south. we can't get out of the pattern. we think maybe by lunch, we'll have a few peeks of sun and 70 now and 79 at lunch. and this evening, skies will finally clear temperatures in the mid-70s. what's wrong on the hurry up, here's sharon. well, we're picking up a lot more problems now. first of all, we have an accident on the major roadway on 95 reported at 32 and another new accident near hairyson and a second accident at middle river. take hawthorn as the alternate and we have a car fire at druid park late drive and this -- well, in addition to that, we have the police activity and oakfield is closed between norfolk. that's because of a vacant dwelling collapse.
you'll want to take wall cot as the alter not and there are your drive times and speeds. minor delays between 795 and 95. 51 miles per hour there and there's a live look outside at 95. that's just at 32 and no delays despite the accident and the rain. it's getting busier north of white marsh. remember, wjz-13 is always on. and here's what people talk about today. a huge airline merger could change the landscape at bwi and impact airfares. >> the biggest airline serving bwi thursday good marshall announces a buy outof the air plan for $1.5 billion
>>ened a it's a merger. i don't know how it will effect them. >> and the south west ceo says that the airline will serve 100 million customer. the customers will benefit from the expand. >> reporter: and a downside is less competition. en south west airlines serves 42 markets and air tran flies to 22 cities. and including regional overlaps, that means less options to many, many cities. >> if you have fewer competitor, the tendency is, i'm going raise prices because i can. >> there's more major mergers because of the economy. >> you don't do the
emergenciers and everyone keep -- mergers and everyone keeps a job. where you're going to have redone dependency, you'll -- redone dependencies, -- -- >> five dozen airline passengers say that a pilot saved their lives. >> heads down! stay down! . heads down! stay down! >> that was the scene over the weekend with a plane heading for new york made a landing in jfk. the 55-year-old pilot landed the plane safely with a set of rear wheels. >> it could have been bad, but
it was a smooth landing. >> all 60 passengers were bussed to white planes and an investigation is underway. here, the johns hopkins doctor shot in the abdomen by a patient's gun is back at home. he was released from the hospital yesterday. pardus then shot his mother and himself after shooting dr. cohen. a california jury convicts a drunk driver of murdering a los angeles pitcher. the man faces 50 years to life in prison. and he ran a red light in april of 2009 and hit the other car. the crash happened house -- hours after the 22-year-old made his pitching day brew.
>> >> it's a landmark court case. the judge ruled that people have the right to videotape the police officers after an arrest. >> reporter: good morning, once again don and everyone. we're talking about a video seen around the world after a 24-year-old motorcyclist videotaped his speeding arrest and posted it on youtube. >> get off of the motorcycle, state police. >> reporter: it's a tape that was a youtube sensation. the 24-year-old record his stop with the help of a helmet camera. >> reporter: he faced felony charges and a decade in cris for recording the stop. >> they took the information they had and presented it to
the state's attorney, legal advice was obtained and they said that move ahead with charges. >> reporter: they threw out four charges of a grand jury indictment. >> when i'm talking to you, shut your -- mouth. >> reporter: this officer was caught on tape beraiding a skate border. >> when the police encounter us, they take the position that what we say will be used against us in a court of law. and why shouldn't the same rules apply to the police that apply to you or i? >> the police haven't reviewed the judge's ruling. it's not clear if they'll issue new guidelines to troopers. >> he still faces charges of
speeding and negligent driving. >> a local author was one of 23 grants handed out by the mcarthur foundation. he created "the wire." he has a $500,000 prize. he feels guilty about winning the award in a bad economy. last night, monday night football was played. it probably ended before you went to bed. the bears hosted the packers. we'll fast forward to the end of the fourth quarter when roby gold makes the field goal. the bears are 3-0 on the season. when the ravens take on the steelers, they could be without ray rice. he's been diagnosed with a right knee contusion.
the head coach addressed the issue yesterday. >> injuries are a big part of the deal and there will be injuries an hopefully we'll position ourselves to overcome them. and that's proven itself already. but, rice is a good player and we would rather have him. >> and the mri showed a significant bruising. >> the ravens have a date with the steelers here sunday. the last coverage kicks off at 1:00. and it's a full raven's sunday, all live here on wjz-13. and in the health watch report, coffee may be what keeps hospital's running both day and night. the research shoes that the
nurses depend on the coffee more than doctors. more than a 1/3 of workers drink coffee to get through the work day. >> you think? we'll discuss that during the commercial break. let's look at first warning doppler weather radar. continuing rain in the region. and we can't get out of the pattern. and i think that there's potential soaking rains with us throughout the entire morning commute. we'll go for a high temperature around 83 degrees. that's provided we get early enough clearing and sunshine to get us up to 83. right now, it doesn't look like that's going to be a potential issue. the issue being, getting up to 83 degrees. and by the way, we're in a slight risk category for gusty weather should we get sunshine in the early and mid-afternoon.
and ronnie's glad he's inside. >> we're doing great, i have to mention, you talked about ray rice. yesterday, carroll and i were out and a guy said, you can't cook without rice. is that a t-shirt or what? >> i like it. we have to talk to the maryland screen printers. >> that's great. >> >> we're live at hamdon and the salvation army is talking about the angel tree program. it's not too early to talk about the holidays. we'll tell you why when the eyewitness news morning edition rolls on. ,,,,,,,, old gibbs canning company.

>> the star from "the good wife" is on coffee with this morning. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
bob ehrlich pretends to be for the working guy... but he's not on our side. i thought i knew bob ehrlich, but then i found out... he raised property taxes on every maryland family... and business. he increased college tuition... by 40%. 40%. and i thought i knew bob ehrlich. he was against raising the minimum wage. made $2.5 million... working for a lobbying firm. $2.5 million? he's not really on my side. with this tough economy, we really need a governor on our side.
hello again, it's the bottom of the hour. wind swept rain on your way to work or school this morn. of course, it's also warm and humid. and sharon has the traffic and a bad scene on the westside of the beltway. this weather isn't going to make it better. here's the first warning doppler weather radar. i've got news for you. it's pretty foul, almost areawide and right now, where we don't have the moisture falling, we've had the rainfall, steady and heavy over this area here. look at all of that moisture. looking at the forecast for the day, what we'll see is potential clearing later on t that's not for the next few hours.
70 now and on the way to have 83. donning take it away. we have a lot of slow moving cars. >> yeah, we can show you a live look at the westside of the beltway, we have a problem, as you can see, we have an accident on the westside inner lupe. that's past 795. that's blocking the right lane and it's causing delays there. we have plenty of other problems. you'll want to watch for that one on old eastern avenue. and apparently, a vehicle off of the ramp there and that landed in someone's backyard. an 18-year-old was transported to the hospital. we have an accident as i mentioned on the inner lupe past 795 and one on 295 between 895 and 695. and also, one still there. and the police activity in the city blocking oak dale, that's
where a building collapsed and wall cot is the best bet and we have a downed pole in howard county blocking all lanes there. and take route 40, baltimore national pike as the alternate and that's the alternate for most of the morning. it will be an hour before they'll be on the scene there. there's a look at the drive times and the speeds on the beltway. there's a live look outside at 95 and 32 and a look at 95 and whitemarsh. you'll have to tap your brakes into the southbound lanes. remember, wjz-13 is always on, for traffic information any time go, to this is brought to you by toyota. thank you, and at the top of the news, a follow up after tense moments yet when a row home chanced and witness -- collapsed and witnesses thought a woman was inside.
>> reporter: sky eye chopper 13 is over a house collapse. >> i've seen the debris falling off of the building and i heard a loud boom! >> reporter: the firefighters get on their hands and niece and dig through the house, brick by brick, beam by beam after reports that a woman was seen walking past the house when it came crashing down. >> our firefighters and our special operation's team are here on site. they're going through the debris to determine if someone is beneath the debris. >> the firefighters used a hi- tech thermal imaging camera. it's a device that detects heat. and after an exhaustive process, it was determined there was no victim in the rubble. and the residents are surprised. when i saw it yesterday, it was perfectly okay.
>> reporter: no one was injured as a result of the collapse. the housing department is investigating the cause of the collapse. it's unknown at this time. thank you, kai. the house next door was also evacuated. also, an update on a mental patient morerred. -- murdered. a 46 year old said he strangled a 45-year-old with a piece of string inside the hospital. he said that moments earlier, he kissed her in her room. the motive is very unclear. >> the baltimore couple accused of killing johns hopkins researcher stephen pitcairn won't go to court until
january. they're accused of stabbing stephen pitcairn in july. some vindication for a motorcyclist. good morning, andrea. >> reporter: good morning, don. the 24-year-old is facing charges and he dodged a bullet yesterday when the judge through out the felony charges. >> get off of the motorcycle! get off the motorcycle! state police. >> reporter: it's a tape that became a youtube sensation. a 24-year-old air national guard sergeant recorded his traffic stop with his helmet camera. >> i thought that the officer was going to shoot me.
>> reporter: he faced several charges for video taping the incident. >> legal advice was taken and they said, move ahead with charges. >> reporter: and they threw out four charges of the indictment and upholding the public's right to record during interactions with police officers. like the one with this police officer. he was caught on tape beraiding a skateboarder at the inner harbor. he was fired last month. >> when the police encounter us, they take the position that what we say is not private. and why shouldn't the same rules apply to the police that apply to you or i? >> reporter: this morning, he tells us he's since sold his motorcycle and he doesn't ever
want to ride one again. don, back to you. and the judge says that anyone in a public place should expect to be recorded. peace talks are stalled if not derailed all together. the obama administration has been scheduled with the palestinian and israeli officials. an israeli air strike killed three hamas militants. and -- who were allegedly preparing for a missile. and rahm emanuel is expected to run for the mayor of chicago. >> rahm emanuel reportedly said he's certain to leave to run for the mayor of chicago.
earlier, he said that office held a special place in his heart. >> that's been a special aspiration of mine. mayor of chicago? >> the one thing, if you ask me what i miss, that's the contact with constituents. >> at the time, the job was filled with daley. he won't run for another term. if he does resign, this man will feel the role of chief of staff and adviser and close friend, valerie jarred is another contender. we'll see what decision needs to be made. >> and family issues are the sticking point for rahm emanuel. his wife and children only recently moved to washington with the kids starting in an area school three weeks ago.
bill clinton changed chief of staff four times during his presidency. this is not ideal though. the white house is readying a final push for the white house five weeks away and the president's approval ratings continue to sag. if rahm emanuel decides to run for mayor of chicago, he must act quickly. the filing date for the primary is november 22nd. and we know his commission polls put to test his political viability. and a suspension from showalter keeps him confined to the press box. he was fined and the coach got the birds to a win and snapping the four game losing streak. one more victory, the
steelers will be off to their best start in 31 years and the ravens are hoping to spoil that dream. they'll play the steelers sunday and ben roethlisberger won't be on the field as he sits out his game and you can watch the ravens taking on the steelers in pittsburgh this sunday. it will be followed by the post game shoes and mark viviano will have the highlights and reaction. and we'll have football talk and a big day of football, this sunday, live, here on wjz-13. all right, coming up on coffee with. we'll be joined by "the good wife." and that also stars josh charles. if you've been watching, she'll throw you a nice bone chew.
something to think about. and that's a scary gin rummy player. we'll have more and huge problems on the westside. and we have first warning weather. huge problems on the radar. that's when we return. [ female announcer ] remember this promise?
[ man ] martin o'malley -- taking on bg&e to stop the rate hikes. [ female announcer ] never happened -- your bill went up 72%. and o'malley gave the bureaucrat who approved the rate hike a huge raise. now martin o'malley promises we're moving forward. the fact of the matter is our economy is doing much better now. [ female announcer ] really? nearly 7,000 marylanders lost their jobs last month. four years ago, martin o'malley misled us. now he's just making stuff up. bob ehrlich. we can do better.
good morning, we have rain continuing to fall in the area. it's not showing on the radar. it has rained and it will again. and taking a look at the watches, warning and advisory graphic. we have a flood warning in effect. otherwise, we have a flood watch in effect for rain that's fallen. it will continue to fall. 72 degrees now and 93% humidity and a southeast breeze at 9. and hagerstown, cumberland and oakland, up to 66 and everyone on the this display in the humid, low 60s. by moon, hopefully, we'll bust
the rain out of here. thursday, another low from the south and spreads rain in the area. if we get sunshine this afternoon, we're in a slight risk category for a thunderstorm. tomorrow, 76 degrees and a calm day and a mixture of clouds and rain and possible soaking rains thursday. and sunshine, 72, 70 and 66 degrees. >> >> get ready to see red brake lights in the rain. here's sharon gibala with traffic control. >> oh, yeah, we can give a picture of that one. we have an accident of the delay. that's past 795. it's blocking two right lanes and causing a backup there at this point. we have an accident working on 295 between 895 and 695. the one on the southbound is still there.
there's one at sinclair also. and fair view, there's a building collapse. and watch for a downed pole in howard county. route 40, baltimore national pike, that's the best bet there. 795 southbound, 21 minutes between owings mys and the beltway. delays on the top and the westsides with 16 and 14 minute drive times. and there's a live look at the topside of the beltway. and there's cockeysville and there's the delays. and this is brought to you by your toyota dealer. this morning's coffee with
is furnished by cbs. ladies and gentlemen, we're in the crest of a huge hit wave. how's it going? >> i'm good, thank you. >> well, that will bring a smile to your face. >> well, it's nice to hear applause in the morning. >> one more round of applause for her. [ cheers and applause ] . >> well, that's the indoor lawn. >> oh, okay. here we are, another season of a terrific tv show. there are ratings hits and terrific tv shows. this is a terrific tv show. >> we got lucky. >> i say, thank you, "good wife." it's the writers. >> and the costar, josh charles. when we had him on, he sang your praises. >> we've been friends for years
an it's one of those moments in life when you think, we work together? we were playing cards as buddies five years ago and now, we get to work together and i think that he's one of the most truly underestimated hours we have. watch as his character goes. he'll be soring high. >> i'm going back to the writers, but what type of cards. >> rummy 500. >> you're hard core, wow. >> i love a good card game. >> how much interaction do you have with the writers? they're so accessible. i don't have that much. i'm never disappointmented with the script. i look at the script and i
think i have to live up to the writing. and for an example, last year at the end of the season, they called me into this room and they said, we want to make sure you're happy and what would you like to do and i wanted to understand where she came from and why she let her husband take the property seat. who is she that she would stay in a marriage after this humiliation. why is she a good wife. >> go ahead, please! >> and in their respect for our process, that's what you get to see. you meet by brother. >> and everyone in the room, none of us has done a situation television program, the news can be. take us behind the scenes. is it rare for the writers to say, where do you within the to
go? >> yes, it's rare. first of all, robert and michelle king are married. and she's from -- well, she's an only child and she's one of seven. i truly believe this is why this works well. they talk out the scenes and they're coming from different perspectives. for me, i've never had a producer come and sit down and say, what do you feel and think. >> they're respectful and they know if we're happy, they're happy. happy parents, happy baby. i think they chose great actors to talk about and say their words. in dog so, they want to know our imput.
>> i listened to one of the other interviews and you said that the two main characters don't know as much as the audience knows watching. a that unusual. >> well, i think so, in a certain way, i think, especially on network television, what happens sometimes is we dumb down the show. i say we as an everything. i think that networks, because the advertisers, they want to make sure that the audience understands everything and the beauty of cable is they don't have the advertisers and they can do what they want. what's happened with our show instead of dumbing everything down, they've smartened it up. i feel like i have the network show that reads like a cable show. >> and tell josh, i said hi.
pizza peppy's on us. >> well, we'll take a break and come back and we'll have the tv traffic control and first warning weather. stay there. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
while coffee with was on, we've been advised of a severe thunderstorm warning for allegany and washington county until, let's say, well, 7:30. and i've got to be honest with you, this could get righteous out the 70 corridor before not
too long. if i expand this out, you can see there's more moisture coming in western maryland and the forecast calls for an 83- degree high. that's providing we get clearing and if we do, we'll see a thunderstorm here, later on. now, over to sharon gibala. >> hi, marty, not a great morning on the roads. we're following the accident on the westside. that's blocking two right lanes and causing a backup. watch for the delays there and for possible delays on 295. there's an accident on 95 southbound on the ramp to eastbound 32. and a crash in the city involving a pedestrian. and the police activity still blocking the avenue there and apparently, a building collapse there. and instead, there's a downed pole on frederick road.
and that's going to be there for a little while. you'll want to take baltimore national pike and meantime, 795 in the red, a 20 minute set back. there's the dive times and speeds average is 32 miles per hour. there that's a significant delay. and there's live shot. that's not showing the delay, but the wet conditions out there. there's 795. >> and this is brought to you by the cochran firm. call for more information. there back to i yo, don. charges dropped against a maryland motorcyclist who taped his encounter with a state trooper. the ruling means that the public
can record interactions with police officers. this morning, the police are searching for two men accused of stabbing a student at security mall. one of the dolphins at the national aquarium has died. he was battling bad health for a year. she was the second oldest dolphin there. her body has been taken to johns hopkins where an autopsy will be performed. >> the johns hopkins doctor who was shot last week is back home. he was released yesterday after pardus shot and killed his mother and himself and stay with wjz, maryland's news station. we have cleat news wealth -- complete news and weather complete news and weather ahead. ,,
bob ehrlich's real record on energy. lobbyists helped write utility regulations. we got stuck with a 72% rate hike. but martin o'malley got tough on bge, forcing them to pay back $2 billion to consumers. and what's bob ehrlich been doing the past four years? he got paid $2.5 million at a lobbying firm, a firm representing special interests and casinos right here in maryland. that's bob ehrlich-- a 72% increase for us and $2.5 million from special interests for himself.
nice work, bob. i give patients act restoring mouthwash. act kills germs, restores minerals strengthens enamel. act restoring-- for strong teeth act now.
